Fortnite Chapter 2 News: Release Date, Season Pass Price, New Map, Themes, Skins, Weapons And Why There Is No Season 11

The new Fortnite Chapter 2 update, arriving after the now-famous 'The End' event finale, left players in a state of panic and confusion. Fortnite Chapter 2, formerly believed to be Fortnite Season 11, features a host of new modes and changes to entice fans and improve the game state. After an extended downtime after the end of Season X, players are once again diving into the fray.

Much to the displeasure of many, players were left staring at a black hole that refused to budge after the end of Season X. During the live Fortnite event we saw the seven visitors launch through multiple rifts and they ultimately crashed into the "Zero Point" which was nestled in Loot Lake. After this, players were sucked out of the map and now everyone is stuck in a black hole loading screen which was assumed to be the downtime for Chapter 2.

What Do We Want To See In Chapter 2?

We expect to see some weapons unvaulted. In particular we wish to see the Hunting Rifle, Tactical Assault Rifle and Shadow Bomb make a triumphant return.

As we've stated before, many new features and changes will appear within Fortnite Chapter 2. Something that is far over due is the option to disable pre-edits, as well as edits starting from the camera angle and not the pencil. Many will agree with us when we say that we wish to see the Mechs removed, as they were a common issue with the gameplay in Season 10. We'd also like to see an FOV Slider added to the game.

How Much Will It Cost?

It’s doubtful Epic will change their pricing structure so expect the same as previous seasons. You’ll be able to buy the Season 11 battle pass for 950 V-Bucks ($10) and the Battlebundle for 2800 V-Bucks ($30) to unlock the first 25 tiers. You’ll also be able to purchase individual tiers for 150 V-Bucks.
